We want to thank you for your support and patience over the last few days. We appreciate that you have many questions and concerns and we would like to reassure you that we are doing all we can to address these.
The team has been engaged with colleagues across government representatives, industry bodies, and our own accounting team to gain appreciation of the critical issues facing the sector.
This is so we can understand how we can support you at this challenging time.
We don't have all of the answers as yet, but we hope to have further clarification in the coming days and will advise you accordingly as soon as we are able.
The key area we are seeking clarification on is the Prime Minister’s and Chancellor's statements, how it applies and should be implemented.
Unfortunately the mechanism has not yet been built by HMRC, which still leaves us with many unanswered questions.
The current situation and closure of educational establishments is having an enormous impact on all of us, and we are resolved to provide the best support and guidance throughout.
Thank you again for your understanding.
